Teachers' Workshop February 20-24
Music Mind Games Unit 1
with Kari Lapins
What is Music Mind Games?
Music Mind Games is a successful and popular method to teach students music theory and guide students to become musically literate. This hands-on workshop covers basic music theory concepts such as the musical alphabet, intervals, rhythm reading, rhythm math, melodic dictation, solfege, Curwen hand signs, the grand staff, alto and tenor clefs, musical symbols, tempos, beginning key signatures and beginning scale study.
Unit 1 covers approximately 100 games, played in the same sequence that they can be played with students. Some student observation will be included to give teachers the opportunity to see games in practice, learn how much can be accomplished in a short period of time, and observe the joy with which students of all ages embrace learning with this method.
The Unit 1 workshop is open to all music teachers (all instruments, voice, and classroom teachers), and will include 30 hours of teaching over five days. Click here to learn more about our instructor Kari Lapins
